With all the replanting of bean I did, I'll be picking until Dec !!! I know what you mean !

I scored 6 pecks of pickles yesterday from Becky at 6.00/peck...Last week she had them for 14.00/peck !!!!
I did 2 of them so far as Bread and Butter Pickles.. 17 pints and 25 half pints...
I 'll probably do one more as Br & Butter and the rest as Dill and 9 Day Sweet Pickles.
Doing good, so far, selling my Canned Goods at Becks Farm.

Yesterday morning, I found this beautiful HUGE (3.5" wide) bright green moth on my porch wall. I took a picture last night as it was still there...I thought it was dead !!!
I looked it up on the internet and found it was a Luna Moth...
(I'll post the picture on our Wall )
Here she was laying eggs. So now I have moth eggs to watch...She is gone this morning. (They only live for a week...How Sad !!! )

I was just out checking the garden... I think a couple of sprouted beans were taken by the birds, or they rotted from the last few days of rain. Either way, I will need to replant a few beans. That is OK tho. I can still plant beans at this stage of the season. It just means that we will be harvesting beans for longer into the growing season.
The rest of the garden is doing very nicely. I hope this nice growing weather continues. If it does, we should have a splendid garden this year.

GEMINI-SKY... That is great! I know that the new raised beds and fences that I built, have been helping us a great deal. This year, as long as God and the weather allow it, we should have a nice amount of veggies from our garden.

YAY! A very kind young couple helped mom and I, by connecting our rain barrels to our eaves troughs for us. I am so very grateful for their kind help. Mom and I could not have done it ourselves. I only hope that I will be able to help them in return, in some way.

I had smaller critters that had been eating eating our veggies, as well as the deer. That is why we decided to go all out, and redo our garden, making them slightly raised, and fenced in. So far, it is working fantastic, at keeping our veggies safe.

WOW! I had an interesting experience, when I went out to tend to the stray feeding station / shelter this morning. I walked into the shelter, and found a baby skunk sleeping inside. It was a little skunk. The little girl / boy woke up and looked at me, when I walked in. He / she ignored me, and just walked out of the shed / shelter. I wonder if he / she realized that I was the one putting all the food there, and so was not scared? I wonder if it even knew that it was a skunk. The other critters, which are mostly cats, did not get excited about it being there, so the little fellow must be a regular visitor.

We are finally getting the type of rain we need. The weather station had been telling us for the last 2 weeks that we would get rain, but we seldom got what they predicted. A couple times we got a good solid rain, but most of the time it would just barely spit a bit, or not rain at all in my area. The last 2 days have been ideal in the rain department. It would rain for a few minutes, clear up and be sunny for a couple hours, cloud over and rain a bit again, and then get sunny again. It repeated this pattern for these last 2 days, and the plants are loving it. In this last half a week, they have grown a lot.

Good that you found out the problem with the tap. I've been there lugging water around in buckets, no fun at all.

Canned the marinated red peppers today, boy did they look good.

YAY! Mom finally figured out why our outdoor tap was not working. One of the taps along the water line in the basement, was turned off. I am glad we figured it out. We use rain water, when we can, but when we did not have enough rain water, we had to haul water from our kitchen, to water the garden. Now we can simply use our garden hose, when we run out of rain water.

Have to change the bed linens today, think I'll change my doona (quilt) over for a new one I bought. Hot bath this afternoon will hopefully make my back feel better.

We don't have to collect our water as we have well water.
I do collect water in rain barrels for the gardens and have a pond we dug for watering, too.
More rain yesterday and today. Thank goodness we live on a high spot. There has been a lot of flooding in the surrounding areas.

Today is strawberry day. Jam and some for the freezer for over ice cream or cheese cake !

I can't complain here it may be cold but we've actually had a bit of rain which is really needed to keep our water tanks full, we're not connected to the water supply so we have to collect, store and dispose of our water.

Our weather station keeps saying our area is saturated... but here where I live, it sure isn't. Our area has been dry most of the season. When we finally got the rain over this last week, the ground just sucked it all up. It still is not saturated. Most of the time last month, that the weather station said that we would get lots of rain, we didn't get much. We really needed the rain that we got. It shocks me that the surrounding communities in all directions, are having issues with flooding, when our area isn't. Go figure! emoticon

With all of the rain we had this spring, it sure is dry out there.
Watered all the beds, planted potatoes, planted 35 marigolds and 3 pine trees.

Busy day yesterday...
I made 5 batches of pepper mustard from the peppers I had ground and frozen last fall.
Nice to have the freezer space back !
Each recipe uses 8 cups of chopped peppers.
When I finished, Jimmy came home and wanted to go to a farm auction.
I got a 2.5 ft wide x 8 ft tall arch trellis (5 ft span) for 5.00 and a walk thru trellis with gates for 7.50 !!!
8 boxes of qt canning jars (each box had 15+jars) for 1.00 per box....
AND the jars were VERY Clean !!!!
A maple twin bed with new mattresses for 5.00
A step down vanity with tri-fold mirrors from the 1930's for 5.00
Plus more...I spent 60.00 and had Jimmy's truck so totally FULL that we almost had to leave some things and come back...But we did it !
Tired this morning....

They look like a green Cauliflower right? They taste like a cross between Cauli and Broccoli, or are we talking about the stuff that's like lettuce?

I have my garden in, except to keep adding onions for scallions. I like the staggered planting for those so I have them all summer. Yesterday a friend dropped off several plants of Romanesca. Have to find some room for these. I hope they are good. Has anyone ever planted or ate these before?

YAY! I finally have all the garden beds that mom wanted converted into raised garden beds, converted into nice raised garden beds. One medium sized one that is located near our deck, I planted full of flowers, in the English garden style. It looks lovely. I planted some stock flowers. Oh my... do they ever have a lovely scent! The scent is reminiscent of cinnamon and sugar. emoticon

I'm grateful that I'm able to grow all the year here, I picked some Pak Choy the other day and gave some of it to the guy down at the general store.

I pulled some of the sweet potatoes out of one of the pots I planted them, I was really surprised they actually grew, I expect some beauties in the next pot. Definitely will be planting them again next year.

Army worms or web worms are a pain in the bum. I used to get them on an English broom tree before it got burnt down. I used to use a forceful jet of water to get them off the tree, but Pyrethrum spray (which is organic) can kill them. They will ultimately return as they hibernate in the soil, you just have to be vigilant and keep at them.
